Discovering this album was like finding a beautiful old novel in a 2nd-hand bookshop - a rare gem that you certainly won't let go of once you've found it.
Some of the jazz greats - Hazell Scott, Charles Mingus and Max Roach - combine to give us an album of relaxed, satisfying jazz standards you can sit down with a scotch and a good book to listen to and enjoy.
Sadly much of Hazel Scott's works seems to have been left behind in the transition from LPs to CDs. Finding any of her albums on CD is hard - this taste of a great jazz pianist at work is one of the few available.
If you've enjoyed listening to Buena Vista Social Club of Dave Brubeck's Take Five, you are certain to find this a very satisfying album.
